Sparx EA 15.1 UML-Profile/MDG Creation not working properly
« on: January 28, 2020, 07:47:00 pm »
Hi!
I started creating an UML-Profile using Sparx EA 15.0 Build 1513. I used the "meta-constraint"-Connector to define some type and class behaviour. After updating the EA to 15.1 (tested all Builds up to 1526) I'am not able to use the "meta-constraint"-Connector between stereotypes anymore. I have tested on some colleagues maschines facing the same problem. Are there already other people having such problems? When can this be fixed?
Kind regards! Markus

Markus,

What do you mean by "not able to use meta-constraint"?
What happens if you try?

I just did a quick test and this is what i noticed

- It's not an option in the quicklinker
- When you have "Strict Connector Syntax" on EA refuses to create one between two stereotype
- It works when using the connector from the toolbox with Strict Connector Syntax off.

Seems like a bug to me. You can report bugs using the link on the bottom of the page: https://www.sparxsystems.com/support/forms/bug_report.html

Hi Geert,

thx for your quick reply. Strict Connector Syntax is the trick. After turning this feature of I'm able to create meta-constraints again.
